'If we did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.' Thomas Edison

Another busy week here.  Orders for Handmade Haven are constant at the minute, which is great, but means I have to try and fit everything around family life in the summer holidays.  I did manage a day out to see my wonderful Nan who I hadn't seen in a few months.  We had a wonderful lunch and a catch up and she gave me a carrier bag filled with treasure.  When I got it home and looked through it was full of tiny beads that she can no longer see for her sewing.  At 84 she is still sewing things but she has taught herself to knit as well, so she still has something to do :o)  Such an inspiration!

This is cool! Imagine how many necklaces and accessories you can actually make with these beads. Start posting your first bead project today.

What a lovely bag of treasure. Your Nan must be very proud to see you carrying on the crafting tradition in your family! xx
